A Christmas criss cross easel card

Here is a Christmas criss cross easel card. I made the criss cross card as a normal one but then stuck onto the front of an easel card.
The image is a Karens Doodles which I have coloured in with Berry Red and Forest Green and almond Promarkers. I then cut out with my circle and scalloped circle nesties.
The backing papers are from a Dovecraft pack of christmas papers from a couple of years ago called Contempory christmas. I cut the removable red scalloped tag with a sizzix die and tied eskimo wool through the hole in the centre.
I attached the image with 3d foam pads to raise from the card and then cut a red poinsettia with a Marianne creatables die which I also added to base of card with 3d foam pads to hold the card upright.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
